Can't Create Link To Download PDF File (2 posts)

    I want to allow visitors to my WP site to click on a link to download a PDF file but I can't seem to get it to work, here's the details of the setup:

    I create a post and use the code,
    Click Here To Download!

    When I try to view the site I get a few different problems. First of all the link doesn't become available until I click "read more" below the post... this isn't good for me. Second of all, when I click the link I get an error message.

    I'm new to this, so maybe I'm going about this wrong, can someone instruct me on how to properly do this? Should I be doing it through a post or another method?

    Thank you

    P.S. Let me know if you need more information about the problem

    "First of all the link doesn't become available until I click "read more" below the post."

    Then add the link above the <!--more--> quicklink in your post. That is, if you're using that in your posts. If not, it would help to know if 1. you're using a plugin to add the 'more' link automatically, or 2. displaying just the excerpt of posts on non-single post pages.

    "Second of all, when I click the link I get an error message."

    Don't make us guess the error...

    It would help in troubleshooting all this if we had a link to your blog, or more specifically the url to a post with a PDF download link.
